The American Planning Association (APA), Technology Division, has selected SOM's RegenCities Initiative for an Honor Award in its 2018 Smart Cities Awards. The awards program recognizes projects that support the development of smart cities.
RegenCities is a research initiative that seeks to define the regenerative city—a concept of urban development built on a restorative relationship with the environment. The initiative centers on an analysis of public data on the built, natural, infrastructural, socioeconomic, and cultural systems of cities.
Award recipients were honored at the APA's National Planning Conference in New Orleans on Monday, April 23rd.
